    1 thought on “Salsa Stories (cuentos Con Sazon)”

    1. I think this was a cute book. This book was about a girl that was given a gift (I won't tell you what it was) and uses it to record different stories from members of her family. I enjoyed the different stories in the book. There was a family tree at the beginning of the book and favorite recipes from different members of the family in the back. I believe this book would be a good read for a girl probably in the third or fourth grade. There were some Spanish words woven into the stories, however [...]

    2. I enjoyed these original and moving short stories. I was excited when I flipped through the book and saw that recipes were included. My husband loves to cook and I love to eat all kinds of different foods so I look forward to giving one of these a try. Although many Latino books may focus superficially on the foods and holidays from different countries, these stories are so much more than that. However, the importance of food, family, and celebrations to each culture is apparent in every story. [...]

    3. Absolutely loved it. The book is a collection of short stories related by characters from various Spanish-speaking regions (Guatemala, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Peru, Cuba, Argentina). It blends elements of food and music with the historical, political, and economic context of the characters' lives. Even though the book is targeted at upper elementary aged students, more than one of the stories left me teary-eyed.

    4. This book is tied together by the introduction and final chapter about Carmen Teresa and her family together at a party. The stories that are in between are about her grandparents and a few other people. Most of the stories are about their childhoods growing up in various countries. Perhaps short stories are not my cup of tea or I'm not the target audience but I did not find these stories particularly captivating. I wanted more out of most of the stories.

    5. I enjoyed this book I'm not sure how many kids would read it cover to cover. Even though the book's short stories are fiction I might use one or two as examples of personal narratives.

    6. This book can inspire kids to collect their family stories and family recipes. I wonder if we could create a classroom collection - each child retell a family story centered around food.

    7. Salsa Stories is a charming book filled with heart felt stories told with a latin american flair. The main character is Carmen Teresa. At the beginning of the book she is given a blank notebook as a present. She is given advice from her neighbors and her huge family as to what she will write in it. Her family thinks she should gather up stories from family members that they can remember from their childhood. Most of the book are these stories. And there are a lot of stories to tell. But in the e [...]

    8. I read the book called, Salsa Stories. This book was written by Lulu Delacre. I found this book to be interesting. I liked these moving short stories. I like the characters in this book also. I like how the short stories are still all focused on the same thing in a way. I like how it has that Latin American culture. In this book the characters are always spending time with each other as a family. I like this book. It is a quick read. I would not recommend to most people in highschool because the [...]

    9. Ordered through using bonus points, I picked this one up for three main reasons: it was a collection of short stories and I am constantly adding shorter texts to both serve as mentor texts and to read during days that our GT population is out of the room and I cannot read from our chapter read aloud; but perhaps most importantly because it was a multi-cultural text. I don't think teachers can share stories about ALL kinds of people enough. I want my students to recognize themselves in the stori [...]

    10. I read the short story, "New Year's Day." Musical rhythmic language mix delightfully with sensory details of food, music, and conversation to create an immersive storytelling experience. This is a celebration of life and all its joys--family, food, culture, and heritage. To read this is to fall in love with language and details, and to long for a Mama to cook you special dinners! I look forward to reading the rest of the stories in this book!

    11. se trata of family muy happy y de una senora que era jefa de su madre y son muy buenos cuentos que pueden difrutar y a lo ultimo tiene resetas de comida como dulce de leche arroz con pollo y su abuelo le sucede una tragedia se quema su apartamento pero la idea de la alfonbra que le digo que hiciera

    12. Kind of a cute book, but I couldn't really get interested in it. It's more of a collection of small stories from the girl's family rather than a story with an actual plot. They are all centered around Spanish culture so that part was fun. My favorite part was the recipes in the back of the book. I think that it would be fun to make some for Jacob, since he served part of his mission in Mexico.

    13. What a DELIGHTFUL book! This is one of the books I bought for our Esperanza Library with the money donated by two of our board members--Steven Winitzky and Patricia Matthews. It might be fun for us to put together a similar book with stories and recipes from our Esperanza scholars and staff--and that we can possibly sell as a fundraiser.

    14. At a family and friends New Year’s Day party, Carmen Teresa receives a blank book as a gift from a family friend. All the friends and relatives at the party tell her to fill it with stories, and each adult tells a story from their youth in Guatemala, Peru, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Argentina. Latin American recipes of foods mentioned in the stories are included.

    15. On New Year's Day, Carmen Teresa's Maryland home is filled with relatives, friends, and neighbors from all over Latin America. When Dona Joseph gives Carmen a blank notebook, each guest tells her a story to write down. But Carmen has an idea of her own. Illustrations.

    16. Brooke won this book at school and brought it home for us to read together.I enjoyed reading it and thought maybe we could make one if the recipes at the end when Brooke finishes reading it.

    17. I love the woodcuts and the recipes, and I appreciate the book's focus on Latin American culture, but the stories themselves are bland, even for the target age group.

    18. Had to read it for Kena's spanish class. Kind of fun to read a spanish book again. Love going through High School a second time

    19. Each chapter is a vingette, of a story of one member of a family. Cute quick read about traditions and family relationships in a Hispanic culture.
